Borat ended up as #1 at the box office blowing away Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause. It earned $26 million in about 830 theaters while Santa Clause 3 only ended up with $20 million despite being played in 3,400 theaters. The one quip I have about Borat is that I already saw half of it on the internet which was somewhat disappointing.
As for the other movies, Flushed Away came in third with Saw 3 following and The Departed holding strong with very little drop in its audience.
All this is a reason to celebrate with pictures of Isla Fisher, Sash Baron Cohen aka Borat aka Ali G aka Bruno’s wife.
